No matter the time of year, Arizonians have their favorite fruits and vegetables.

According to a new study by Total Shape, the most popular fruits in Arizona are apples and mangoes, while the most popular vegetable is a mushroom.

Total Shape was able to determine the top 20 most popular fruits and vegetables in the U.S. to find the most popular fruit and veggies in each state by mining Google search data.

In Arizona, apples are searched up to 90,083 times a month on average, while mangoes are searched an average of 9,025 times a month. Mushrooms, Arizona’s most popular vegetable, are searched on average 9,033 times a month. 

Apples are not only the most popular in Arizona, but all over the country. On average, apples are searched up to 4,684,392 times a month in the U.S. 

“There are more than 750 varieties of apples in the world, and more than 100 types of apples existing in the U.S. alone, so it is no surprise that apples are the most popular fruit,” says a spokesperson from Total Shape. 

Mangoes are also the second most searched fruit across the U.S. with an average of 655,623 queries a month. 

Fruits and vegetables are a great way to maintain a healthy lifestyle; however, even though fruits and vegetables are a popular search online, that does not mean that they are consumed as much as they are searched. 

The study also identified common barriers that make it more difficult to live healthier lifestyles. According to Statista, 46% of adults say that healthy eating is too expensive; 23% say they do not have enough time to cook; and 20% say they have a lack of knowledge about healthy diets. 

However, Total Shape emphasizes the importance of healthy living, stating that “Pursuing a healthy lifestyle is a hot topic across the US, and research shows around half of Americans are healthy eaters, according to their own testimonies.”

There are actionable ways to achieve a healthy lifestyle, including incorporating more fruits and vegetables into your daily diet.

“The best way to alter eating habits are to make fruits and vegetables convenient for snacking by storing them in easy access portions in your kitchen,” says the Total Shape spokesperson. “Pack combinations like peanut butter and celery for your daily lunch to get a kick of protein with your fiber.”
